RADIO BULLY CUEBALL MACKENZIE GINS UP NEW CBD "CRISIS" WHILE IGNORING SITUATIONS THAT ARE A REAL WORRY

                                                                                                                                                                   
Radio bully John MacKenzie loves a crisis.  He loves the WORD crisis.  He barks the word like a rabid dog.  And even as his listener base has died off to be replaced by NO ONE, he builds each day's show around his ginned-up crisis, ignoring news of real consequence to Cairns.

Yesterday was no exception.  The "crisis"?  Reducing the speed limit in the CBD from 50 to 40.  

Yes, I can hear the laughter.  It's hard to believe that this subject would get even 10 seconds mention elsewhere.  And yet in his opening remarks yesterday, Cueball MacKenzie was all bluster and snort on the subject.  

"If you're in business in the CBD I would suggest you beware of this (proposal by Council) because this could bring the death knell to your business" he roared!  REALLY!  A change in speed limit creates a crisis that could end your business?  You must be kidding!  But Cueball sees himself as the chief protector of street operations in Cairns.  He assumed that the Mcleod reconfiguration would be reversed when the Manning Council was elected.  He was angry at Bob "Sleepy" Manning for weeks when he learned that he wouldn't be getting his way, because there is nothing wrong with the new layout.  But MacKenzie was heard ranting about it for weeks.  

MacKenzie has also been instrumental in blocking off traffic from his own residential street (Cairns Street) and installation of diversion measures on James Street.  The speed that this issue was addressed by the Bob Manning Council has the stench of payback.

These ginned-up crisis replace REAL news of import to Cairns.  For example, the Tony Abbott front bench has for the first time NO Tourism Portfolio.  Tourism, a $35billion/year business employing over 500,000 Australians and 40% of the Cairns economy has NO federal interest anymore.

The Gold Coast tourism chief calls it "alarming" in the Gold Coast News.  The Cairns Post meanwhile said nothing.

WITHDRAWAL OF GOVERNMENT SUPPORT to tourism is a crisis.  A 40km speed limit in the CBD is not.

I had to endure listening to some old battle-axe rave on about how she wanted to go down on that fucking useless wanking over the Quaid Rd. I had to pull over and have the biggest spit ever and I wasn't even hung over.

Oh Christ not the people up at Cow Bay again ranting on and on about no electricity. Hey DICKWADS you all bought that fucken land because
DO YOU WANT TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL, NO PHONES, NO CARS. JUST YOU AND YOUR OWN LITTLE PIECE OF UNSPOILED PARADISE? This was the wording of the commercials sprouted by John Mackenzie years ago when Quaid persuaded Joh Bjelke Petersen to give him all that National Park land to flog off. CAVEAT EMPTOR peoples. You bought it without sewerage, good roads, electricity, and so on. CAVEAT EMPTOR.

She was calling King "sir" and was practically performing fellatio over the phone. It was revolting. She was either drunk, overdosed on Prozac or plain mad.

Those female LNP groupies all seem to have something wrong with them. They think we now have paradise on earth and they are not even aware that they are being screwed over.There is a Facebook page called "women for Abbot' or something and it is full of Abbot groupies in various states of arousal writing infantile crap. And that's the so-called "elite" that is now running the country on every level of government.

A worried Pearl rang as well today, because Douglas shire is about to be taken over by the Greens and Communists apparently. Good for you Pearl. Enjoy !

Pearl will be enraged, frothing over with bile and yellow flecked asputim because a WOMAN may become Mayor of Douglas Shire. Mackenzie and the LNP will have another splitfork to persecute with Pearl egging them on. See where Alan Jones is now attacking Clover Moore in Sydney with the same misogynist treatment dished out to Julia Gillard. BUT LNP women are all running around defending Tony Abbot's decision to have one female Cabinet minister with, "Oh having a vagina doesn't mean you're the best person for the job.!" Makes you wonder what fuckwits they are all. Someone should tell them that having a dick shouldn't automatically qualify a person either but somehow I doubt they understand it.

Depends on how big your dick is if its small you can become Member for Cairns or Mayor, if its big then you become member for Leichhardt and a big DICKHEAD.

Gavin King and Michael Trout are kicking goals!!! Hahaha! What do Labor hillbillies have to say about the LNP kicking goals in health announcements this week?!? C'mon Tony Hiilier - admit king and trout are actually doing a top job!!!!!!

Yeah well lets not forget the mental health facility announcement was financed by labour.Hate to see king get credit for the previous government forsight.

And as for the 40 km/hour speed limit, anyone who actually drives in the CBD should realise that one of the best protections for our tourist industry is to drive more slowly and not run down a wayward pedestrian tourist who hasn't realised what side of the road we drive on in Oz.

NYM you are either very poorly informed or deliberately being devious. Quaid obtained NO National Park land at all for the Cow Bay subdivisions. What actually happened was that the state govt overturned the DSC decision to not approve the subdivision ON FREEHOLD LAND. The subdivision went ahead with provision for services and no public land,a terrible result.
The land was in fact advertised as an investment, and many of the first buyers were just that. Most were told that power was coming.
While the premise of Caveat Emptor always applies, the community largely supported later conservation measures, and no rightly sees that the remaining land needs to be used in an eco friendly manner. A green grid would dramatically reduce pollution and make the area truly an eco destination. Calling people names merely identifies you as one of the supposedly educated classes who have an opinion on anything and everything, often based on bullshit, and without any real world experience.
My advice to you is stop the schoolyard bullying and name calling, do your research properly and someone might take you seriously. Until then you are just an irrelevant bitter name caller. Man up.

Anonymous, I well recall the controversy over the Quaid land. It was never meant to be developed and my understanding was that it was National Park.

Anonymous said...

NYM I suggest you recall it but not well. The Cow Bay land was surveyed as farmland in the 1890s and was owned by mostly unsuccessful farmers who gleefully sold it when money was put on the table. (some did not however). The standard of roads in the subdivision was mostly good, and phones were connected soon after. In the initial stages absentee landlords were the norm. National park surrounds much of the area, but no National Park was given to anyone. I do agree that the subdivision was regrettable, but much of the land has been bought back, preventing a catastrophe with all 1100 blocks settled. I think your original comments were just a typical them and us shock jockish poorly researched opinion, and that is why I responded. Labor policy that forced people into running generators with no provision to even legally share powerplants was reprehensible, and while it seems unlikely that taxpayers will fund 40 million to run power up there, at least the way is now open to do things better, thanks to the LNP.

Ole rugnut needs to confect up some crisis whatever it is, whether its ants running up a wall, or finding a piece of paper in the street. There aren't any females to blame for all the worlds problems anymore, and to rant and rave about every day, week in week out, year in year out. He's on the LNP payroll so he's keeping quiet about all their goings on. Labor is in opposition so he has nothing to fuel hatred about any more. All he's got now is to sing the never ending praises of King, Trout and Kempton until the State Election, and let people know how blessed they are to have godlike deities who can do no wrong ever and whose every word is godlike.
